Foley on Woods: He'll Get Over It

Canadian swing coach Sean Foley told the Washington Times that his prized student made the right decision to withdraw from the U.S. Open:

“He’s doing the right thing,” Foley told The Washington Times on Wednesday. “A lot of people in golf are selfish, and this is affecting them and making them upset. This is about my buddy who has taken responsibility. I’m proud to see that he has realized this is the best thing to do. It’s frustrating in the short term, but the big picture is much better.”

 He concludes that the naysayers are wrong when it comes to Woods:

“He’ll get over it,” Foley said. “If you don’t believe in Tiger Woods’ ability to play golf, you’re crazy. Who doesn’t go through a dry spell in life? We all do.”

    I can control your targeting and dispersion!

    I have the Ontario license and the fitting cart for regular and belly putters with the Mitchell digital loft/lie bender. Al is back next week, come down and visit and I will fit you for one. I can also bend, weight, counter-weight, adjust length, put a neutral grip on and point it at the hole and ensure the right loft.

    Al’s will be here on Monday or Tuesday.

    Let me know.
